We have just increased the number of Stars that can be displayed on a message.
With the new settings, when more than 15 Stars are added to a message, a number will be displayed between two Stars. If more than 300 Stars are added to a message, the number of Stars added by each user will be displayed.
Stars will be displayed in the following three patterns:
1. When 15 or fewer Stars have been added to a message
2. When more than 15, but fewer than 300 Stars have been added to a message
3. When more than 300 Stars have been added to a message
Pattern #2 is mainly used to avoid obscuring the message with numerous Stars. In the past, the number of Stars displayed was limited to 12, after which a number was inserted between two Stars to show the number of Stars added. However, in response to requests from our users to display more Stars, we have slightly increased the limit.
Pattern #3 is mainly used to avoid slow uploading when a number is clicked. In the past, Stars were organized by users when more than 100 Stars had been added to a message. However, in response to requests from our users, and the fact that expanding 300 Stars does not overload the browser in most instances, we have increased the number to 300.
